The heroes fled the town of Greenwind on several boats with Captain Rayne and the refugees in tow. After the heroes were all equipped with powerful magic weapons from the sentinels, they were tasked with taking their own vessel farther north to follow a lead learn what the Nashemi tribes, and old native race of people that , might know about this new enemy.
While sailing the heroes encountered another boat. After they discovered it was illegally transporting Nashemi people to be used as slaves, there was a high seas skirmish. The heroes came out victorious and rescued the Nashemi captives.
The sentinels went ashore and returned the rescued Nashemians to their tribe. After earning the chieftain’s respect, he told them of a holy cave that contained the remains of an ancient Nashemi hero that defeated an enemy called the Arnak that sounds a lot like the queen and the creatures that threaten Illyria today.
So the five heroes traveled to the flowery final resting place of the Nashemi hero. They found some very old seeds hidden by a riddle, hinting at something to stop the Arnak, inside of his gravestone.
Right when things seemed to be going the sentinels’ way, the queen entered the cave. This time looking more like a human woman, the heroes attacked the queen. The queen’s overwhelming speed and strength was no match for them and they barely managed to escape into an extradimensional space created by Kulle. They then watched as the Arnak queen became agitated by the flowers around the grave and flew out of the cave distressed.
